Title This: WWE Raw Reaction 7/9

Josh Isenberg

Dolph ZigglerDolph Ziggler and Tensai def. Tyson Kidd and Christian

What I Liked:

I expected a lot of good ring action between these four guys. I was wrong once again, because the match was over in under 3 minutes. I loved Kidd's flying neckbreaker that was connected on Ziggler. The ending boosted the confidence of Tensai, who has been up and down for the past two months.

What I Disliked:

What do we gain out of this? There is no stories building, no angles, and no connection to the crowd for anyone to care about what just happened. Money in the Bank is meant for everyone to look strong heading into it, and only one guy looked strong here. There is no drama, and it seems like they feel just a simple Ladder can make fans buy these matches. Look at last year, where there were so many pieces. Was Alex Riley ready after beating The Miz? Is Del Rio back on top? There were so many pieces, that I did not even mention, that took place inside the match. There is no creativity with any of these superstars.

Grade: D

Brodus Clay def. Drew McIntyre

What I Liked:

We step back in time, as Clay got a quick victory over a mid card talent. Clay hit two moves, including one nice headbutt when Drew flew off the top rope.

What I Disliked:

One hour down, and we have only 6 total minutes of wrestling between three matches. This was awful and a complete waste, especially before the PPV on Sunday. Where the hell are the guys who are being used on Sunday? I would rather see Rhodes, Sandow, Santino (in a match) or even someone like Kofi and R-Truth. This makes no sense whatsoever to me. They apparently could care less about buyrates. They do not showcase all of the talent that is SUPPOSED to mean something on Sunday.

Grade: F
